Why We Volunteer
I’m a retired solicitor so I enjoy being able to use the skills and knowledge I gained during my career. I’ve also learned new skills, I’d never have thought I would be doing benefits checks for people. I enjoy helping people and am passionate about working in a service that provides quality advice for free.
My previous career in Social Work gave me the skills and experience to help people who use this valuable service. In exchange I am regaining my confidence after a lengthy career break.
